Spix's Macaw[edit]

Among IBAMA's diverse environmental and natural resources activities, it manages The Working Group for the Recovery of the Spix’s Macaw and its associated Ararinha Azul Project (Little Blue Macaw Project) for conserving one of the rarest birds in the world. However the last Spix's Macaw living in the wilderness disappeared in 2000 and the species became extinct in the wild.[2]
